Site Glossary

I try and avoid using acronyms, slang or otherwise unusual words to explain or describe things on the website to try and keep it as open to everyone as possible however there are some times where it is much easier to use them to explain things.

If you are here you have probably followed a helper link from somewhere else and the anchor link has failed. Simply scroll down this page to find the section that relates to the page you came from and there will be a list of acronyms and their definitions to help you.
